Stampendous, May Arts, Core'dinations and David Tutera - big Play Date!



I know, I can't quite believe it myself! But yes, we're having another week of big and exciting crafty collaborations!

This week Stampendous gals are teamming up with the lovely folks at May Arts Ribbons and Core'dinations. We also get to play with the new David Tutera line of crafty products from Core'dinations.

Every day during this week the design teams will be bringing you new projects and creative ways to use products from this Great Trio of companies.

And before you ask, yes - we again have LOTS of prizes for the participating hoppers, so be sure to hop along, visit and comment on as many blogs as possible to increase your chances to win some amazing crafty stuff.



Here's the first project I have to share with you and I will be back again on Friday for the big Collaboration Finale.

I've made a summery birthday card using a card blank and a die cut decorative panel and border from the David Tutera collection. The background paper was from my stash.


To create my main panel I first stamped the lovely cling Sunflower Ladybug stamp with Coffee Archival directly onto the die cut Core'dinations card.


Then I coloured my image with STAEDTLER Ergo Soft Aquarell pencils. I blended the colours with my water brush.


Next I stamped a swirl in the opposite corner, the swirl is from the Peruvian Lily set. I also added some distressing around the edge of the panel with a Rusty Hinge DI. In the next step, I heat embossed the whole panel with 5 layers of Deed Impression Chunky Clear embossing enamel. I sprinkled some Shabby White embossing enamel between the layers - the white dots look as if they are floating :).

Once the melted powders cooled off I cracked the enamelled layer in a few places for a cracked glass effect. To highlight the cracks I swiped more of the Rusty Hinge ink.


For my flower arrangement I used some paper flowers from my stash and gorgeous ribbons from May Arts. Check out this fab orange Twill/Chevron Stripes ribbon! And that sweet little ladybug was in the blog candy package I recently won from from the lovely Laura (thank you honey!).


My main sentiment panel was layered over a piece of card that I decorated using encrusted jewel technique.


Awww... I am sooo loving the sparkle!

OK, that's all from me for now. Now it's time for you to see the rest of the amazing projects and get totally inspired!
